Greenwood uses early goals to top Lady Aces in state quarters
Greenwood scored three goals in the first 10 minutes and maintained their distance the rest of the way, and their 3-0 win ended Owensboro Catholic’s season in the KHSAA Girls’ Soccer state tournament quarterfinals.
The first goal came less than two minutes in when Kayelee Maners stole a pass deep in Catholic territory and turned it into an easy goal. A hand ball against the Lady Aces about one yard outside the top of the box set up a direct kick for Greenwood, and Maggie Blair converted on a curving shot into the net.
The final score came with 30:18 on the clock, when a cross rolled through the Catholic defense and into the box, where Maners had another easy chip shot for her second goal.
Catholic’s Maddie Hayden was named to the 2020 KHSAA All-State Tournament Soccer Team.
